Rest in peace, Aleesha.

Employee Spotlight
Marquis Paige
Marquis started working for Langton Green in
February of 2016. The most rewarding experience he has had with the guys that he supports
has been the feedback overall. He loves to see
them smile and be happy. Being able to feel
those moments that made a difference for the
guys is rewarding! Marquis’s favorite aspect
about the guys he works with is that he is their
mentor in a way. He enjoys assisting them with
their tasks and with their thoughts, but also leaving room for their own individuality to shine
through. One word that describes his advocating style is “altruistic.” A fun fact about Marquis is
that he has never pet a cat! Thank you for being a shining light for the guys
you support, Marquis! We appreciate you!
Patricia Crowner
Patricia started working for Langton Green in
April of 2014. One of the most rewarding experiences she has had with the clients she supports is
being able to help them throughout their day.
Her favorite aspect about the clients she supports
is that they always like to learn; sometimes, they
do not have the best focus but they will always
try. One word that describes her advocating style
is “interesting”. A fun fact about Patricia is that
she is outgoing and she likes to stay busy! Thank
you for being an excellent role model for our clients, Patricia! We appreciate you!

Allstate - The Giving Campaign
DONATE AND SUPPORT LANGTON GREEN, INC.
Langton Green is a 501(c)3 organization that provides residential and vocational opportunities
to adults with developmental disabilities. For services provided to each person in our program,
we receive a per diem from the Developmental Disability Administration (DDA). This funding covers our basic operational expenses but does not allow for supplemental program development that can only be afforded through our fundraising efforts. We need community support to
truly enable us to grow and meet the increasing demand for our services.
WHY SUPPORT LGI?
We have asked these two questions of our donors:
“Why Langton?” and “What does it mean to you to
support an agency like ours?”
The overwhelming response to both questions is
that Langton Green - whether through residential
supports or Langton Green Community Farm - helps
people live full lives with purpose and promotes a
quality of life that would not be achieved without
the support and services we provide.
HOW TO SUPPORT LGI?
 Make a monetary gift. DDA funding allows us to
provide the basics, but it is through your generous financial support to our Annual Fund that we
are able to develop and advance our program.
 Join us for our annual Farm Festivals each summer and fall.
 Come out and be a volunteer.
 Enjoy a personally rewarding experience serving
on a committee or on the Board of Directors to
help foster new relationships and bring necessary resources to strengthen our future.
 Take advantage of various online fund-raising
opportunities such as iGive and Amazon Smile
(as Matt at right is encouraging!).
We’ll update you with new opportunities.
WHERE DO I START?
For more information about supporting LGI, contact Development Manager Cristina De Avila at
410-269-1019 ext. 20 or email her at [email protected] Donation information is also
on the web site at http://langtongreen.org/donate/.
